chairman by barack obama and a former senator to anti-yucca mountain senator harry reid, he withheld information from his colleagues on the nrc. from "the wall street journal," strategically withheld information from his colleagues in an effort to stop work on a controversial proposed waste dump according to a report by the agency's internal watchdog. this occurred, by the way, four months after barack obama took office. he had no intention on dealing with nuke hard policy. not a priority, and he shut down yucca mountain because harry reid was in a tough battle in 2010 which he won narrowly against sharron angle. and then, final hi -- i think this is finally for barack obama, on solar power. obama says he wants to promote green energy. well, he has two very bad policies if that's the case. one was playing venture capitalist with your money. solyndra, which we all know went bust and lost $500 million, was a technology that actually might work. it's called sigs, these are expensive panels, but they're more efficient than the cheap solar panels we get from china. china uses amorphous si

the fiscal cliff. an update via twitter from chad pilgrim of fox news, reid's remark that he had made a counteroffer was off-the-cuff response and that there was no counteroffer, and "the washington post" quoting senator joe lieberman saying he'd be shocked if a deal was struck today. we'll bring you continuing updates. for now, back to booktv programs.

that we make and how it becomes who we are. a few marines i have served with reid says because it is a very visual book and has more perspective and the people in my family are rarely mentioned because it is about what i see and i try to let "the reader" watch with my eyes and hopefully those are the things that they know it is their river and what they know and that is what makes the book talk to the bigger things that it talks to the military experience because my marines patrol the same road by looking at different things. their story of the same walk would be fascinating to me because we look at what fascinates us. a strange answer to your important question. [laughter] but it does explain the untested child and unearned confidence to be fascinated with uncertainty and sometimes with that may lead to. >> because it is not the nature of a soldier or marine to complain or state anything publicly to get them in trouble, we have a public health crisis with the gse and it needs to be acknowledged by a car leaders. there is a huge backlog at the veterans hospital and around the coun

this done, but i need a dance partner. mr. reid: mr. president? the presiding officer: the majority leader. mr. reid: we have been negotiating now for 36 hours or thereabouts. we did have conversations last night that ended late in the evening between staffs. this morning, we have been trying to come up with some counteroffer to my friend's proposal. we have been unable to do that. i have had a number of conversations with the president, and at this stage we're not able to make a counteroffer. the republican leader has told me that -- and he's just said here -- that he's working with the vice president, and he and the vice president, i wish them well. in the meantime, i will continue to try to come up with something, but at this stage, i don't have a counteroffer to make. perhaps as the day wears on, i will be able to. i will say this. i think that the republican leader has shown absolutely good faith. it's just that we are apart on some pretty big issues. the presiding officer: under the previous order, there are now two minutes of debate prior to a vote on the baer nomination. who
